“On Friday, a powerful Republican senator indicated to the Wall Street Journal that he had been concerned this summer that President Trump was creating a quid pro quo with Ukraine by holding up military aid. But he appeared to quickly regret sharing something so seemingly damaging, and he immediately began walking back his statements” the Washington Post reports.
“It was likely not a coincidence then that on Sunday, that senator, Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), went on TV to try to defend the president. Except, he arguably did more damage to the president’s cause by showing just how difficult it is to defend Trump right now.
“In his interview on NBC’s Meet the Press, Johnson refused to answer basic questions about why he was concerned about Trump, instead bringing up a conspiracy theory about a former FBI official that has nothing to do with this matter.”Save to Favorites
